    I had an identical experience with a 2.5 I had years ago - turned out to be a faulty MAF. Mike.

    I was thinking that because I this problem with a golf I had I didn't have the maf plugged in on it and when it got wet it would loose power aswel but it wasn't wet yesterday it does splutter now and again but that's the first time it has lost all turbo power .

    Turbo vanes sticking and causing overboost, puts the car into limp mode. You turn off and it's cleared till next time.
    Slap some decent fuel through it and maybe a tin of EGR cleaner.

    Or search for the Mr Muscle trick.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.
